    $8.50 for green beans seems high, have you checked Sweet Marias?

    they are not green but were ROASTED by me this afternoon.
    this is my 8th or 9th roast, i usually roast between 2 and 5lbs at a time.

    i have been using these beans for 2- 3 years to make my own developer.
    these beans are 100% sumatran ROBUSTA beans
    and work exceptionally well for coffee based developer.
    ( i make 3L at a time, and every 3 -4 months take 1L out and add a new 1L to the batch )
    feel free to go to http://caffenol-cookbook.com for more information about my process
    or search me here on apug, i am open about my process.

    btw:
    i didn't buy these beans from sweet marias but i bought them locally.
    70lbs would have cost a fortune to ship.

    It's kinda funny that comment ( even though it was just a misunderstanding ), I was thinking earlier today of making the opposite comment: this seems inexpensive to me since most coffee roasters would charge about twice that per pound. SM happens to have robusta coffee from India right now, and this is not much of a markup over their green bean price. Less than minimum wage for Roaster John.

    Probably a stupid question but what is the difference between this and say Starbucks Colombian?

    hi fotch

    good question ..
    starbucks and other "boutique" coffees ( even dunkin donuts )
    are "arabica" coffee beans, they don't have enough caffic acid ( and other magical things )
    so they won't work very well for caffenol film and paper developers. these beans i procured
    and am roasting and selling are robusta coffee beans which are full of the magical components
    that are needed ( caffic acid and other stuff ) that will process film and paper.

    i have read people using "espresso" ... and that might work depending on where you get it
    some espresso blends have a little robusta in there to give the foam because sometimes
    the arabica beans don't like to make the foam ( krema ) and every coffee aficinado knows
    espresso worth drinking has the seed - dark stuff at the bottom of the shot - the body, and the krema.

    if you or anyone is interested in buying some of this magnificent coffee please drop me a line: coffee@nanianphoto.com
    i will be "off line " for a while and won't have PM or apug access ( to check this thread )... thanks

    Hi,
    I have developed with Caffenol for the first time last week and it's fun! I had good results too: Fomapan 100 and Ilford FP4 in Caffenol-C-M.

    I used instant coffee (Espresso dark and strong).
    I wondered how it works with regular beans. Just make strong coffee? Could you tell me a bit about this process?
    Thanks,

    Bert, show us some results! My first batch I either did not seep the coffee enough or develop the film long enough and I got thin negs. I still have another "kit" from John and will try again soon....
